Re: Just got a bass!

a squire is a perfectly good bass man. I've been playing bass for about 5 years and the longer I play the more I realize it's all in your hands. Just have it set up decently, slap a good pair of strings on there, and you're ready to go. As far as songs go, wake up - mad season is a great song. It's ...

i don't think your sacrificing any acoustic qualities by going acoustic-electric. All you're doing is adding a pickup. If anything you are "sacrificing" electric qualities. Even that the only problems is more prone to feed back and it won't sound like an "electric guitar" moreso ...

i love the acoustic.
The thing about the original is that the dissonance kinda in the back once it gets punky, the kinda random almost staticness of the guitar really symbolizes a lot to me of what he was going through. I could just be baked though.

He is an amazing bassist that throws down some nice grooves. Best is kinda hard to consider. I would probably consider peoplesuch as Jaco Pastorius, Victor Wooten, Les Claypool.. People like that to be 'better' bassists. Victor is kinda a solo artist.. but yeah.
